So, what can you do to lessen the chance of something like this happening to you?

Here are my thoughts on the matter. Please bear in mind these are my personal opinions, and I'm not giving advice, legal or otherwise. But I hope you find the points worth thinking about.

Include copyright information

Strictly speaking you may not need to, but I think it's a good idea to have something like '©2017 your name' in the footer, and a notice at the front to say that copying is not allowed without your express written permission. It just makes it harder for someone to make 100 copies and then plead ignorance on the grounds that they thought it was licences under Creative Commons.

Next time: something you ought to be doing come what may and regardless!
